Nigeria Customs and First Bank Ladies have justified their high rating with unbeaten performances in the first phase of the ongoing Zenith Bank Basketball League in Jos and Akure.

By their outstanding performances, the two clubs have clearly shown their intention of making it to the Lagos finals later in the year.

In the Atlantic zone which was held in Akure, the ‘Elephant girls’ as First Bank Basketball team is called, defeated all opponents to remain unbeaten after five games.

To confirm their supremacy, First Bank yesterday defeated home girls, Sunshine Angels 51-32 as they head into the second phase.

However, IGP Queens and Dolphins are the teams walking a tight rope in the Atlantic zone after losing three matches respectively out of five.

MFM and Bayelsa Whales are the other teams with impressive runs and a chance to fight for the two tickets at stake after Phase 2.

Just like First Bank, Nigeria Customs ladies also edged out all opponents in the Savannah Conference in Jos.

After their opening day 73-32 victory over Kada Angels, Customs in a crucial Match Day 2 fixture, defeated defending Champions Air Warriors 64-48 and went ahead to ruthlessly beat Nigeria Army 78-32.

They also defeated Nasarawa Amazons 60-41 on Match Day four.

The President of the NBBF, Musa Kida, has assured that the ongoing new style of the national women league is the best for the game.
